Holiday 2019 Giveaway

Greetings, dear readers! December is quickly passing by, and I figured I better get up this giveaway post asap! I had originally planned to do an advent giveaway, but that time has come and gone. In truth, the holiday season is a difficult time for me, and I'm currently in survival mode. I've not been able to focus on the blog much; I'm really sorry about that! I'm not going to make any promises about the rest of the month because I don't think I'd be able to keep them. I just have to admit to myself that mentally I just cannot do it all right now and be ok with it. I still have a few posts I want to do this month. Here's hoping I can push through it! Until then, here's my holiday giveaway!


But what is it?

In the spirit of the holiday gifting season, it's just going to have to be a surprise! I will tell you there is a little bit of cosmetics, nail polish, and hair care items in this box. If you follow me on Instagram, I had hinted at one of the items a couple weeks ago, but the rest is a surprise. There are brands I enjoy and some handy items I use daily (the enclosed is new and unused, I promise!).

Please enter in the rafflecopter widget below. All the extra rules and details can be found there.

I wish I had the budget to buy gifts for every one of you; I truly appreciate all your support throughout the year!

Best of luck!

Until next time, dear readers, have a wonderful evening!
XO!

  1. Thanks for the thoughtful giveaway! I hear you on reminding myself that I can't do it all. :) For the holidays, I'm not the baker or chef....I'm the eater! LOL. My husband makes molasses cookies and spritz cookies. If I had to prepare a treat - there is a SUPER easy recipe that I've tried before that combines salty and sweet. Saltines, with melted chocolate on it & pretzel bits. Great kid friendly recipe.

  10. Thank you for the giveaway! It is a busy time of year and I am behind in everything too, but make sure to take some time for you!

    One of my favorite holiday snacks are these chocolate pretzels. Put mini pretzels on a baking sheet and then place a chocolate Rollo candy on top of each, then bake in the oven for 10 minutes til the chocolate is melted. Very easy!

  17. I am sorry the holidays are rough for you. I feel much the same and it's not a good thing. As for recipes, I am the world's worst baker, so... But my favorite holiday dessert is, weirdly and simply enough, butter cookies.

  21. Sorry it's been a tough time for you lately. I've learned that I can't do it all, so one thing I gave up is baking cookies for Christmas. I use to bake about 12 different kinds. Now I just try to enjoy the time spent with my family.
